The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum--Designed by Zaha Hadid--Opens in East Lansing

Image via dezeenThe Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, the latest building from starchitect-of-the-hour Zaha Hadid, opened at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, over the weekend. The $45 million building opened about seven months later than originally scheduled due—delays reportedly caused by problems with the complex glass shapes on the building’s façade. So far, however, the 46,000-square-foot stainless steel and glass building appears worth the wait.

The building’s opening garnered a lot of coverage from mainstream and design industry media outlets. Designboom has a fairly comprehensive run down of the design components of the building, in addition to a photo set of the new building. For another great slideshow of images, also see dezeen. The Wall Street Journal explored an anticipated “mini-Balbao” effect for East Lansing given the museum’s iconic aspirations. The LA Times coverage of the building’s opening focuses on Eli Broad’s role in funding the museum—Broad delivered the lead gift of $28 million to help build the museum on the campus of his alma mater. The name Broad should be very familiar to observers of the Los Angeles art and architecture scene. The Broad, a new museum designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, is planned for Downtown Los Angeles next to Frank Gehry’s Disney Music Hall. If it’s still going to be awhile before you have a chance to visit East Lansing to see the new museum, there is still a virtual tour of the museum available online, as detailed by FORM back in April.

Eli Broad Announces Plan for New Museum in Downtown L.A.

Billionaire art-collector Eli Broad unveiled plans last Thursday for the porous-concrete-shelled structure that will house his 2,000-piece art collection and provide an anticipated catalyst for downtown's halting renaissance.

The Broad Art Foundation features a three-story layout designed by New York-based firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and consists of a spongelike mantle that lets light into the 40,000-square feet of gallery space, which itself sits atop a vast storage vault.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro Picked to Design Broad's Downtown Museum

Eli Broad has picked New York-based firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro to design his new art museum for downtown, the philanthropist announced at a Grand Avenue Authority Committee hearing today. Diller Scofidio + Renfro was recently selected to build the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive's (BAM/PFA) new building, and was one of behind New York’s High Line. The firm also worked on the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. The Committee approved plans for Broad's museum, and he announced his plans to put the project on the downtown site minutes after their vote. Gensler will serve as executive architect.

Under the deal, Broad will finance construction of the $80-million to $100-million museum and contribute $200 million toward its operation. He would pay $7.7 million over the course of the 99-year-lease.

His 2,000-piece collection includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro.
